Introducing: The New Course Editor

Creating the structure of your eLearning courses or assessments is at the heart of what engages your learners. Without the right effective structure and engagement, turning the course content into learning outcomes (goals that describe how each student will be different based on their learning experience) is much harder.

So the last few months we have been working very hard on building the new course editor for easygenerator.

Today we’re happy to officially introduce the all-new easygenerator drag and drop course editor! The new editor creates a completely new user experience and changes how a user structures their courses.

Drag and Drop Creation and Inline Editing

  • The big picture of a course on one page: sections and their content and questions are on one list.
  • Fully drag and drop based: create and re-arrange the course structure by dragging and dropping items.
  • Moving content and questions from one section to another has never been so easy.
  • Smart overview of all available question types

Getting started with the new editor

To see the new editor, open the easygenerator app – Once there, you will see an option to try the new course editor on the wide green bar on the top of the screen.

For now, you will be able to switch back-and-forth between the current editing experience and the brand new course editor.

Within the new course editor, you’ll likely notice a few things. First off, you can create and re-arrange sections and their content and questions directly on the page. Moving content and questions from one section to another has never been so easy.

Second, now it’s possible to edit section titles inline, directly on the page.

Last but not least, it’s really awesome. Okay, I made that last one up, but this new drag and drop experience streamlines how you create your eLearning courses to help make them easier, faster and have more control on the structure.

Thank you!

We LOVE feedback! Hearing from you helps to shape easygenerator in the right direction. Learning what you like and dislike, want to see more of, what inspires you and what’s important when you create eLearning courses all help us as we design for YOU.

If you’ve got feedback about the latest course editor, we’d be grateful if you’d take a moment to share it with us on our support form.

Update: we continue with improvements…

Based on the feedback that we have received from our enthusiastic users, it’s been already decided to make several improvements within the next few weeks to the new editor in order to make it even better. The most missed and the most requested addition to the new editor is the navigation bar that was not added to the question and content pages. I’m glad to announce that this addition will be added soon.
